Jumpman is back! Returning in the first authorized commercial sequel since the 1980’s, Jumpman Forever brings all the fun, action, puzzles, and frustration of the original game to modern platforms. Â This isn’t a remake – all the levels are brand new, keep with the style and difficulty of the original, while bringing new gameplay elements. Â Guide jumpman through levels the combine puzzle elements along with action and suspense, as he defuses bombs in an effort to save Jupiter Station – and more stations after that!
Also along for the ride is a new, second playable character – Red, a starship mechanic who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Â Unlike Jumpman, she’s not a bomb-technician, but she does have an advantage over Jumpman. Â Her prototype jump boots give her a double boost, giving her the chance to reach higher than Jumpman ever thought of!
But, we’re not just shipping the game and calling it good. Oh, no way. Â Instead, once every quarter after iOS and Android support is added, we’ll be dropping level packs to continue the game (and it’s lose plot-line) for two years, giving players an great value. Â Plus, we’re going to be releasing a level editor and integrated level sharing community to people keep playing Jumpman Forever, well, Forever! (See, that’s where we got the name from 🙂 Â In fact, even development on the game’s core doesn’t stop – we’ll be adding new game modes (like Precision Mode, Speed Run, Explorer mode), and new game elements just for those who are looking to create their own levels!

What about Steam / Desura / Mac App Store / Etc?
This site is the first stop for all releases – we update all the other stores after this one. Â Right now, we’re not in Steam and all the other stores, but we will be – and we’re going to do something fun with that. Â If you buy it here, and later want it on a different app store (so that you can get Steam rewards, etc.), we’ll be making keys available for other distribution platforms when possible.
